View Full Version : Drake R19 70 cm vs. Deboichet Custom equivalent

I was wondering what the equivalent Deboichet fin was compared to the Drake R19 70 cm. I'm guessing it's a +8 rake and a soft flex. Also, how will the Deboichet equivalent compare in performance to the Drake? Would I notice a difference?

I have found someone selling their Drake R19 stock from their F162 and would be putting it on a 2005 Roberts Formula R, which has a narrower tail. Is this fin appropriate or is it too powerful? I'm looking for a fin to use in under 15 kts, but focusing especially on really marginal planing conditions, which is what we seem to get a lot of around here. I'm about 77 kg.

Nobody has an idea?
